Some reminders for you.

Do Now (everyday as you enter class)
Put away cell phones and MP3 players.
Take out any assignments or homework.
Reflect on last class and prepare any questions for me.
Mentally prepare for class – get ready to learn.

Homework (this you do everyday)
Reflect on today’s class and what you learned.
How did you do in class today?
Could you do something better next class?
Do you have any questions on what we did in class?

These are the things that students should do everyday, for every class they are in.
